Super Easy “Crack” Fudge

Some might think I need to rename this recipe…but I kind of like skating on the edge.  Seriously,  this is a super duper easy recipe you can whip up in 5 minutes.  If you only want really healthy recipes, you should probably stop reading now …. BUT I have made a few nutritional swaps to make it an easier decision to try them.  As I was poking around my  kitchen seeking to tame an unruly sweet tooth, I decided to whip up a quick fudge.  What I have done is swap a few ingredients to make this gluten free, vegan and free of dairy and peanuts. So if you’re feeling daring and not counting calories today, give this quick recipe a try.

fudge

Ingredients for a SMALL batch:  (Figured a small batch means I could eat it all – try doubling if making for more than yourself)

  • 1/4 C Vegan butter (I use the soy free version pictured)
  • 1/4 C Sunflower seed butter (I like salted and crunchy)

Place these two ingredients in a pan and heat on low until all melted.

  • 1/2 t vanilla
  • 1 C Powdered Sugar

Remove pan from heat. Add in vanilla and powdered sugar and blend until smooth and creamy.  Pour and pat down into a flat glass container.  If you wet your fingers you can pat down quite easily. Chill. Demolish.

Seriously, how easy was that?

Enjoy!  Debra
